Rock Key’ Roll


Shopping the world to find creative Christmas gifts at a recession price…

What about identifying an important key (for example the one of your bike) without sorting through a bunch of similar keys. You buy the guitar shaped blank, bring it to your favorite keys shop and voila. Order now a few online (to pay for shipping) because the creative people of Haniboi are located in London. 15 british pounds or about US$ 22.

    as a former practicing locksmith, a word of advice – keys are pretty complex pieces of design – and there is no assuredness that the person you bring your new pricey blank to is going to (dont have keys cut a hardware store) have a fixture that can accommodate an unusual, novelty shaped key – there is a reason after all why keys are standardized – htey have to fit existing “out in the field” tooling.

    Additionally many times a key wont work after its been cut- (remember the key is a tight tolerance piece of machining done by rookies in most instances) – due to many many possibilities, necessitating a “re-do”…so if your gonna head down this road – BUY AN EXTRA BLANK – there are a million ways to screw up cutting a key and so, you want a backup…just in case.

    I don’t think I could live without this amazing piece of metal.

    Some of my bikes use the same blank so I use a grinder to put notches in them.
